Guys,
Actually it might be more accurate to say "Help for the ladies". I'm currently working on a project at work. The problem / opportunity is that everyone else involved on my team is female. As much as I enjoy serving as the Ambassador from Jackassastan and helping them understand what is important to guys and what makes us tick, I could us some help.

The ladies would like to ask a few questions. You could answer any or none of them. I have learned a lot about from you guys in the time that I've been here. Could you help them... and ME.

Basically, I need a little help with the ladies.


Some of their questions...

1.Hobbies or interests-how do you spend your free time?

2. If you had to tell people in 30 secs what you are about-what comes to mind?

3.Did you ever send a guy a card?

4.What is it you feel is really important to you?

5.What is the nicest thing anyone has done for you? Was it a family member or friend?

6. Who knows you the best?

7. Have you ever kept a card that someone gave you or do you just pitch them? If you kept it, Why?

8. What is the coolest or most meaningful thing you lady could say or has said to you?

9. What is something you would never want a card to say?

10. About the language on a card, Rhyming, slang, mushy, funny? does it matter?

11. Would you could choose only one, would you rather be loved or respected?

12.How can I become a UFC ring girl?




Thanks guys. Any imput would be great.

3. Guy to guy cards: Congrats and condolences only.

7. Kept cards? Only those that were home made or had personal notes written in them, not the casual "nice" line or two.

10. Language? Clear and to the point, no slang. Always sounds cheap and wannabe when written by someone you don't know.

11. Loved or respected? Hard one there and would need more clarification. Ewok or Darth Vader....hmmmm.

"I tested positive."

I'll have a more serious response later, after I unburden myself of this "work" stuff.

6. Who knows you the best?

"YES"

9. What is something you would never want a card to say?

"Sorry to hear of your recent incarceration"

10. About the language on a card, Rhyming, slang, mushy, funny? does it matter?

MattJ,
It was my manager that asked me to wear the grass skirt.
I threw in the coconut bra on my own.

1.Hobbies or interests-how do you spend your free time?

Martial Arts & Weight Lifting at least 5 times a week; a big part of my life. When my wife goes to bed I will many times play on Xbox Live with FPS games. Enjoy watching movies.

2. If you had to tell people in 30 secs what you are about-what comes to mind?

Loyal, hard working, honest, physically fit, determined and a very soft heart.

3.Did you ever send a guy a card?

A buddy on his birthday; sure ... but my wife probably bought it.

4.What is it you feel is really important to you?

My family and continuing in my training. Sometimes I lose sight and my training takes more of my family life and I need a kick in the butt to correct it.

5.What is the nicest thing anyone has done for you? Was it a family member or friend?

Too many things to list; all done by my wife. Buys me little presents when out such as chocolates and stuff. Sends flowers to work on Valentines Day or for special occasions because she is thinking of me. Always thinking of me.

I also have a good buddy that goes out of his way to do things for me; thanks Shawn.

6. Who knows you the best?

My wife.

7. Have you ever kept a card that someone gave you or do you just pitch them? If you kept it, Why?

I don't keep them now but I have a box still to this day that I have kept all of the stuff that my wife gave me from cards to little gifts. I'm 39 and we first got together when we were 17; if that tells you how long I've kept it. She has the same kept of the stuff I gave her; even just sentimental things like the little rock I gave her that I picked off of the ground when walking one day with her and told her to keep; she still has it.

8. What is the coolest or most meaningful thing you lady could say or has said to you?

I love you; forever.

9. What is something you would never want a card to say?

Anything to end the relationship. Have something from a lawyer in it.

10. About the language on a card, Rhyming, slang, mushy, funny? does it matter?

No, as long as it was given with good intentions (ie. love) then I'm good with that.

11. Would you could choose only one, would you rather be loved or respected?

Loved.

12.How can I become a UFC ring girl?

You are always my favorite ring girl and I'm the jealous type and don't want to share you with the world.

Some of their questions...

1.Hobbies or interests-how do you spend your free time?

Xbox. Training. Movies. Tattoos.

2. If you had to tell people in 30 secs what you are about-what comes to mind?

Having fun, helping out, being strong for myself and others, expressing opinions, trying to listen, taking pride in all i do.

3.Did you ever send a guy a card?

Yep- leaving work cards. Birthday cards. xmas cards. Fathers day cards. get well cards.

4.What is it you feel is really important to you?

Family, work, and personal time and the balance between the 3.

5.What is the nicest thing anyone has done for you? Was it a family member or friend?

Parents. Loving me despite who I was from 16-25 years of age. forgiving me for said time frame.

6. Who knows you the best?

Me

7. Have you ever kept a card that someone gave you or do you just pitch them? If you kept it, Why?

Most I just ditch. Have cards from momentous occasions (18th+21st birthdays, wedding, anniversary) Anything else I dont keep as a rule.

8. What is the coolest or most meaningful thing you lady could say or has said to you?

I do.

9. What is something you would never want a card to say?

'Sorry I shot you, hope they can sew it back on'

10. About the language on a card, Rhyming, slang, mushy, funny? does it matter?

Yes. On balance, funny is safest (though not humour aimed at the recipient- ie. 'your so old.....' etc, just genuine humour that laughs with, not at).
For valentines/anniversary, I go sincere and simple over mushy. Mushy is not me. at all.

11. Would you could choose only one, would you rather be loved or respected?

Feared. Joking. If i cant have both, then I will take respected.

12.How can I become a UFC ring girl?

Strict health and fitness regime, meticulous grooming, and the only cosmetic surgery would be dental- UFC dont go for the silicone/botox look.

Cord.

1.Hobbies or interests-how do you spend your free time?

Here, I'm thinking of 'free time' as 'when I'm alone' so, video games, homebrewing, reading, solving puzzles, and other essential dorkery.

2. If you had to tell people in 30 secs what you are about-what comes to mind?

Humor, simplicity, playing the hand I'm dealt without complaining about the cards I didn't get.

3.Did you ever send a guy a card?

No, and I don't talk at the urinal, either.

4.What is it you feel is really important to you?

If you mean in a relationship, then first and foremost comes honesty. Without it, everything else crumbles like poinsettia leaves in January.

5.What is the nicest thing anyone has done for you? Was it a family member or friend?

When I was 6 years old, someone stole my Incredible Hulk Big Wheel. My older sister (with whom I was always at odds) went out and found the kid who took it, beat the snot out of him, and brought my bike back. That remains a hard act to follow.

6. Who knows you the best?

My older sister. Now that we are adults, when in times of need, we're able to shed our sibling roles, and talk to one another person-to-person.

7. Have you ever kept a card that someone gave you or do you just pitch them? If you kept it, Why?

I keep things like my niece's christening invitation, and programs from my younger sister's plays. Birthday cards and the like go in the circular file after about a month. I've never received a card or any other type of gift from a girlfriend.

8. What is the coolest or most meaningful thing you lady could say or has said to you?

Nothing specific. Unprovoked compliments make me stand a little taller.

9. What is something you would never want a card to say?

"There's something I need to tell you." Those seven words are never followed by good news.

10. About the language on a card, Rhyming, slang, mushy, funny? does it matter?

Anything, as long as it went straight from heart to pen. Nothing overly thought-out, that reads like it was written by Maya Angelou's understudy.

11. Would you could choose only one, would you rather be loved or respected?

Respect comes from love. It doesn't necessarily work the other way around.

12.How can I become a UFC ring girl?

A thousand-watt smile goes a loooong way.

8. Not married.
9. A permanent goodbye or that someone I knew died.
10. Anything but slang, if you can't talk the time to say it properly what's the point?
11. Loved
